THE JOY OF BIRD WATCHING
Birds can really bring joy to outdoor enthusiast like me. Watching and observing wild birds in their natural habitat is definitely a great idea for outdoor seekers. There are so much to learn about this activity , like how they fly and also what type of songs they usually sing. Generally, watching these birds fly can open secret things about the character of nature and most likely reveal the natural beauty that already exists in nature all around us.
Bird watching has been around for years in the Philippines. I never thought that the Philippines is has over 600 bird species and 200 of those are very unique in the country. The most prolific of bird species is the Indigo banded kingfisher which can be found at the Villa Escudero in Laguna. One bird was named Mariquit and became famous as she has made a book and magazine covers including an ad printed on the side of a red London double-decker bus.
Villa Escudero is considered as one of the best bird watching sites in the Philippines by the Department of Tourism and for having a 90 various bird species .
